Brave, brave people...

It's time that the 'authorities' took a long, hard and truthful look at homophobic attacks.

It's time to stop hiding behind political correctness and tell it how it is!!!

Yes, it will upset and anger quite a few people...but, this has to stop.

These brave, brave people...share the horrors they experienced...it's both shocking and monumentally moving...listening to how their lives were completely devastated by mindless idiots.

The woman who is going through the 'restorative justice' process...we can only salute you, few would be able to tread this path!


No trailer...

The(ir) Blurb...

With homophobic hate crime a daily occurrence and on the rise, this film takes a look at the issue, hearing from the victims, their families and the police. What makes someone attack another person because of their sexuality? How do victims deal with these unprovoked assaults?

To explore this ongoing issue, the documentary visits Alex and Becky as they prepare for a looming court date, hoping to get justice for an unprovoked attack on them in the streets of Croydon. It reveals the pressure heaped on Dain and James's relationship, a year after they were viciously attacked in Brighton, leaving Dain with a broken eye socket and both of them with multiple inuries. Connor discusses the ongoing health implications stemming from the brutal attack on him when his flatmate took a hammer to his head as Connor lay sleeping. And Jenny talks about her brother Ian, who died of injuries sustained in a homophobic attack in the centre of London.

We also hear from a chorus of other LGBT people, who describe the attacks on themselves and recite a litany of the abuse that they have received, simply for being who they are.

Due to the massive amounts of spam we receive, the comments section is curated...so, no spam, no swearing, nothing unrelated to the film...they just won't be published! Time is precious, let's not waste it!
